The Changing Paradigms of Resident Education and Hospitalist Careers: Top 10 Considerations
Joseph Gilhooly
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the role of the Pediatric Residency Review Committee in defining the structure of pediatric residency training.
  2. Explain anticipated changes to pediatric residency training in the near future.
  3. Evaluate the impact of anticipated changes to pediatric residency training on the skills of future pediatric residents
  4. Discuss how proposed residency restructuring may impact the role of clinical fellowship training in pediatric hospital medicine.

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is a private, nonprofit council that evaluates and accredits residency programs in the United States, and its mission is to improve health care by assessing and advancing the quality of resident physicians' education through exemplary accreditation. The ACGME has established the Pediatric Residency Review Committee (RRC) to accredit pediatric residency programs, and Dr. Gilhooly is its current chair. The pediatric RRC is anticipating several substantial changes to the structure of pediatric residency training in the near future, and in this session Dr. Gilhooly will review those proposed changes. A special emphasis will be on the inpatient training experiences of future pediatric residents, the impact of these changes on the inpatient skills of graduating pediatric residents, and the potential implications for pediatric hospital medicine fellowships.
